Toad you so!

Can you see what I am looking at outside?

It is a giant TOAD! The official name of this toady is Bufo Marinus. He is fun to watch, but be very careful, because this toad is very, very dangerous to dogs and cats. So do not play with one!
Can you find him hiding here?
Here is a picture of his back. I am a little skerred of him since he is POISON.
It was raining out, and this toad was hopping around eating WERMS from the patio. Do not watch the video if you are squeamish!


ps: If you cannot see the movie, you can click here to watch it on Youtube.

79 Notes for Daisy:

Christine said...

I think Harley wants to play with the toad, maybe even NOM him, as his tail was all excited. I hope he takes your advice and just looks, not touches!

Sparkle said...

I am glad you told me how dangerous that toad was, Daisy because the first thing I would want to do would be to use him as a cat toy! We probably don't get him coming around in our neighborhood (we live far, far away from Florida), but I will keep an eye out for him just in case!

Winston said...

Mama says Toad is eeeewwww. There are cane toads here in Australia in the north and they are poison too - they shoot poison from glands near their eyes, very tricky and dangerous!

the casbah kitten said...

Woah, Daisy! That's one HUGE toad!! I hope we never have toads like that around here, Alice would be very, very scaird of it.

Keiko (from Kitty Trio) said...

That, is, very very scary.
We have cane toads in Australia, which are also poisonous. GROSS!!!

Poppy Q said...

Hmmmm, that is one funny looking visitor. We are glad you did not let him inside Miss D.

Eric and Flynn said...

Ewwwww! That toad is big and fat.When we were little we caught a toad but it tasted disgusting and gave us frothy mouths so we let it go. We have never touched them since. We are very glad they aren't poisonous in the UK.

Barb said...

♫ Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, Guess I'll go eat worms,
Long, thin, slimy ones; Short, fat, juicy ones, Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.♫

♫Down goes the first one, down goes the second one, Oh how they wiggle and squirm. Up comes the first one, up comes the second one, Oh how they wiggle and squirm.♫

hahahaha!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Yikes!!! That is a big fella!!!! Observe only.

Junk Drawer Kathy said...

Ewww! Daisy, that toad is very big! I would be very skeert of it myself. You just stay inside and look at him and make sure he doesn't sneak into your house! If he does, you just tell your mommeh to go get a really big shovel, OK?

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

Wow, this is goo information I didn't know before. I'm going to share it in my "Things I Learned This Week" post on Friday with a link back here.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

We think he has a rather handsome face!

When he was little, Tommy once licked a toad. He foamed at the mouth for hours and hours!!!!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Furkidsmom said...

We see toads like that from our windows sometimes. They like to get on the window and and tease us. We think eating worms is icky.

Lin said...

Ooooh, that is a FAT guy! I can see why you kitties were digging that out your window. We don't have many toads, but we have frogs in our pond. Hobbes likes to poke them to make them plop in the water.

Marg said...

WE did not know that some toads have poison. Sure glad you told us Daisy. We will have to be careful if we see one like that. Thanks again for the info.
Have a really good day.

Huffle Mawson said...

EEEWWWWWWWW he looks very very nasty. I am scairt!

Kea said...

Aaacckkkkkkk! Holy crow! That toad is freakin' HUGE. On steroids!

Clarissa said...

Mom thought that toad was one of the neatest critters she's seen. But then, our mom is weird. We don't know if we have any dangerous frogs or toads in Kentucky. We have dangerous snakes and spiders though!

Purrs,
Clarissa & Co

Pandafur said...

Omaigoodness I wuld be askarded of that toad too Daisy!

Cory said...

Thanks for the warning Daisy since I think all creatures are my friends...even ones that eat worms and stuff. Do you think he'd eat our slugs? That would make Jonesie happy.

Ramses said...

Gosh I never knew toads were so ugly, no wonder Tigmut'hep only licks frogs! ;)

Sweet Praline said...

Yucky toad! Better stay away from him. I wouldn't want you or Harley to get sick.

Max the Quilt Cat said...

Best Toad movie I've seen in a long time. This toad moves much faster than others I've seen.

I think you want to get out and pounce on him. MOL

Busby and Raymond said...

We can see the relection of Harley's tail thrashing in the window in your video! That is the biggest toad we have ever seen!

The Meezers or Billy said...

JD at I Do Things said...

EWW! That is a very fat and mean-looking toad. I've never seen a toad eat werms before; it was actually pretty cool.

You and Harley are so lucky to have such fun things to watch!

Puglette said...

Poetic Shutterbug said...

While the toad looks harmless you and Harley stay away from him. He is fun to look at though.

Janet said...

ACK!!! I am so scairt of toads! I'm glad you stayed far away from him!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow what a giant toad that is! And we are glad you let us know they are dangerous - we don't play with toads but now we know in case we ever meet one somewhere!

And that video was cool - we bet the werms are like spaghetti to him!

Cats in Trees said...

Wow. You can call that a big fat toad and you wouldn't be insulting it.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

nom nom nom nom nom

Cheysuli and gemini said...

He is one monster toad!!!

A few Good Cats said...

Daisy, thank you for the information about the cane toad. We had only heard of the poisonous part, not the beneficial role it has.

StarSpry said...

That toad looks like a fun thing to watch, but I'm glad you and Harley stayed inside where you were safe!!

Grace said...

That's a good way to get the worms off the patio! And fun for y'all to watch too

The Island Cats said...

Wow, Daisy...we got toads around here but not nearly as big as Bufo!! He is scary!! Poor worms!

Parker said...

I do not want him to come to O Hi O, he looks a little grumpy...

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

We don't want him to cum to Englans either!

Mo said...

That was an awesome video, Daisy.
Glad you and Harley are safe from the nasty poisonous toad.
He sure was BIG for a toad!!!
They must come bigger and more poisoner in Florida than in Michigan!

AttieCattie said...

ewwwwww, toads and wormies! best leave these things to Harley, DaisyCakes, because he is a boy and boys like the gross stuff. good thing nobuddy touched him.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

He gobbled that worm right down the hatch!!!!

Harry Spotter said...

Where did the intruder come from? Is he still there? keep your eyes on him!

AFSS said...

We didn't watch the video as the Mom is eating lunch. But we thinks the pictures are totally pawsome.

Pricilla said...

That is one big toad! I am glad you stayed safe from him...I would not want anything to happen you the two of you.

Junior and Orion said...

EEEWWW!!!!! That is one large toad!! We are so glad that you are staying away from that bad boy!

Junior and Orion said...

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Keisha said...

Oh wow. U are very brave to watch the toad for science! :)

The Crew said...

Ewwwww! Thanks, but we don't want to watch worms, so we'll look at the still photo, if you don't mind.

Meghann LittleStudio said...

I can't believe the size of him! And I saw that tail wag Harley, maybe your mommeh needs to get you a toady toy (not that you don't already have lots of toys, I know you do!).
Hugs and nose taps,
Meghann and Arwen

Theresa111 said...

Cool! I love frogs. Is he really poisonous? I never saw one eat worms before.

Love,

Theresa

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

That is one ginormous toad! Momma saw a toad here but we didn't get to see it, and it wasn't nearly that big! You are lucky you got to see it Daisy!
Purrs and headbutts,
Sabrina, Sam and Simon

Trixie said...

Whoa that is one scary looking toad! He was eating those worms just like they was spaghetti!

Jadielady said...

My cat Tripsie had a friendly toad last year. They would sit at the glass door and gaze in eachother's eyes, and the frog would put his little hand up to the gladd, and Tripsie would put her paw up too. It was so cute!

Mr. Pip said...

Gosh, I had no idea toads could be dangerous! Thanks for sharing this with us!

Your pal, Pip

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Oh! My that's a big one. I would have chase that ... Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

BeadedTail said...

That's one big toad! Looks like he's had too many worms!

CCL Wendy said...

Wow that is a humungous toad! It has gorgeous markings on its back -- even though I do not think that toads themselves are gorgeous. I'm not a fan of worms, either.

You're fortunate to have a strong glass window between you and that toad, Daisy. It sure makes for some good reality TV, though.

Ayla and Iza, said...

Ack, a Cane Toad! Get rid of it fast...

Lorenza said...

Yes... looks like a bufalo... not like a toad!
Glad you were inside!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

Samantha, Clementine and Maverick said...

UGH!!!! What ugly toad!! Be careful you two!!! And we watched the video, but got scared and ran off!!
Your TX furiends,

Grrreta said...

Wow, that is toadally cool!

Karen Jo said...

That is one ginormous toad, Daisy. I am glad that you were inside just watching. I liked the video.

Nico, Simon and JayJay said...

Ooh, Daisy - I think that toad looks yucky, but my brothers would love to play with him just like Harley looked like he wanted to!!

Mom doesn't think we have any of those poisonous toadies up by us here in Illinois, but thanks for showing us pictures so she knows what to look out for!!

Have a happy day!!

~Nico, Simon & JayJay :)

MoMo said...

Thank goodness we don't have toads in my yard. Otherwise I would definitely be using it as my toy.

Thankyou for visiting and purring for me. I am much better now!

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

He's so CUTE and fat!!

jenianddean said...

That is some big toad. I'd stay away from him too. He reminds Dad of a mix between Slimer from Ghostbusters and Jabba the Hutt.
--Jasper

Maureen said...
